ANOTHER Giants seats

View wasn't too shabby...

Of course, the photos were through the zoom lens, but seats were still pretty good!

We were in the second deck and the wind was blocked (we had anticipated freezing as it was a night game). The concessions and potties were in an area that was all felt very VIP ;)
Here are some angles from where we were
to the left:

Just had to get a shot of the flag as it was waving in the night ;)

Our friends Bobby & Hilda joined us for the evening...thanks guys, had a great time!

Back in the day, we used to spend TONS of time visiting in Brentwood. Nowa days, not so much. We recently learned that my Tio Beto has stage 4 cancer, and while my mom's there at least once a week, and my sister's been there several times with that being her godfather, Tyler and I have made the trip just once a few weeks back.

Here are some pics of our visit.

impromptu 80th bday celebration for him (it was in two days)
Join us in prayer as he's begun his chemo and radiation...and it's been a difficult ride for him.

Thomas, Steph & Justin

Yay for visits! We got to spend a few days with Thomas, Steph and Justin a couple of months ago.

We headed out to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk for a few hours...we had some lunch, strolled along the boardwalk...

..stopped for some pics along the way :)

Thomas & Steph rode the log ride!

...and we got to hang out with Justin while they did that...
such a sweet, sweet little guy!...and he just LOVED his uncle Tyler :)

...we walked to the beach for a bit...
...I took some pics of my handsome hubby :) isn't he photogenic?! :)

Then we headed out to the Giants game.
I just LOVE this little face that Justin makes!

all kids 14 and under got a BP jersey - so he's all set with his very own jersey that he can (grow in to) and wear to all the Giants games that he and dad go to! He really enjoyed the game for awhile...clapping and all :)
...had family over for a BBQ

the boys looked like they were wrestling although I think Coleson and Justin were just not able to balance well enough and they'd tick-toc over :)

Justin is so loving!
All the boys got in the pool for a bit

and I think Grandma Burton wanted to get in too :)
Justin enjoyed listening to Uncle Tyler play the guitar.

We went across the street to the park for a bit to let Justin play

...and we all enjoyed the toys a bit too :)

We had such a good time - definitely too short of a visit. We so much enjoyed having them in our home!
